Fantasy Bucket: Lonzo Ball’s Fantasy Debut

By Elvis Gutierrez

In this round of Fantasy Bucket, we toast to Lonzo Ball’s impressive fantasy week.


First Bottle: Jamal Murray

After an ugly first few weeks to start the season, Jamal’s blue arrows are pointing straight up. He’s been averaging 24 ppg, 6 rpg, 3 apg, 3.7 3s, and 2 spg for the week—good for Top 12 in that span.

Second Bottle: Gary Harris

First time we had teammates on Fantasy Bucket at the same time and it’s these two Nuggets (Wait, that didn’t sound right). Harris has been on overdrive lately averaging 22 ppg, 4 rpg, 7 apg, 2.7 spg, and 1.7 3s with stellar %s. He’s like the quiet guy in your group, but always delivers with a bucket of beer when you need it.

Third Bottle: Kent Bazemore

Bazemore’s nickname is “Mr. Inconsistent” (No, it’s really not). But this week, he’s been really good for the injury-depleted Hawks. He averaged 16 ppg, 6 rpg, 5 apg, 3.7 3s, 1.7spg, and 1.7bpg for the week. Hopefully, we can start calling him “Mr. Consistency” after this stretch. Yup, I’m bad with nicknames.

Fourth Bottle: Nikola Mirotic

All he needed was a punch in the face (just kidding, we hate violence). After his brief hiatus from his facial injuries, Mirotic has been on fire, averaging 25 ppg, 8 rpg, 3 3s, and 1 spg for the week and the Bulls haven’t lost ever since he came back.

Fifth Bottle: Lonzo Ball

This is Lonzo Ball’s debut on Fantasy Bucket…because he hasn’t been really good. But this week, we’re starting to see a change, he averaged 15 ppg, 8 rpg, 8 apg, 3 3s, 2 spg, and 46% shooting in two games this week. I can see Lavar’s big ass smile from here.

Despite this, he is still involved in anything hoop-related with his everyday life—playing, talking and breathing basketball. He vows to be a Laker4Life through thick and thin.
